Bobcats asks to talk to Rockets assistant Kelvin Sampson
The Bobcats are looking to replace Mike Dunlap, who was fired last week after only one season with the team. The Bobcats finished the 2012-13 season with a 21-61 record.
Houston is currently down three games to one in their first-round series with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Sampson is a Charlotte resident and was acting head coach during head coach Kevin McHale’s absence in the midseason to deal with personal issues.
Sampson was a college head coach at Washington, Oklahoma and Indiana, leading the Sooners to the Final Four in 2002. He resigned at Indiana in 2008 amid an NCAA investigation.
